The Edit LDN

Disruptive global online limited sneaker platform, The Edit LDN has today signed its first ever brand ambassador securing New York Giants Captain and free safety superstar, Xavier McKinney.

Over the past 24 months, sales have grown 525% Year-on-Year during which The Edit LDN has since launched in Harrods, London. With the appointment of Xavier McKinney, the company is raising the bar even further as it expands in to the US. Xavier Mckinney is, in his own right, a true disruptor and has become the ‘culture changer’ for the New York Giants organisation. Now in his 3rd season, 21 tackles in for the year alone, he is proving to be a force that can’t be stopped and will go on to achieve great things on and off the field. The Edit LDN and brand ambassador Xavier Mckinney share the same vision of fashion & creativity; ensuring one is able to showcase their true personality and ability to express themselves through fashion.

I feel like the sky is the limit for this partnership and I can’t wait to showcase our creative collaborations.” The Edit LDN stocks on-trend, high-end exclusive new and pre-loved sneakers with high end streetwear and collectables. Its customers dare to be different which is how McKinney sees himself - seeing fashion as an opportunity to convey his individualism and can set a tone of how he is seen on and off the field. Making a mark with his sharp, fresh take on fashion off the pitch and often seen in brands such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton & New Balance, the NFL star has big plans to further his involvement as a creative within the fashion world, a plan The Edit LDN are keen to be a part of. CEO of The Edit LDN, Moses Rashid commented: “We want to be able to help express Xavier’s creative flair for designing and bring that to The Edit’s audience who are constantly after the new, disrupting exclusive items. We knew we wanted to partner up with a personality that best reflects our beliefs and values and when Xavier came to our attention it was a natural fit due to his passion for all things fashion. ” “We knew he embodied the values of The Edit LDN from our first meeting and we feel privileged that he has chosen to support our continued rapid expansion into the USA over the coming years. We have some really exciting projects lined up together which we’re excited to share with The Edit LDN community". With the limited sneaker market currently valued at around $10B, there is no slowing down global growth for the team at The Edit LDN. Bringing in Xavier will be accelerating their plans to dominate the US in 2023 due to his popularity within the Giants. Working together will be a collaborative project showcasing the talent of the budding creative director.

Rembrandt’s Famous Masterpiece Available In 8,000 Pieces (NFTs)

Curzon PR

Now, everyone has the opportunity to own a digital piece of one of Rembrandt’s most celebrated works, The Night Watch (1642). The painting has been divided into 8,000 pieces, which are available in the form of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) — a digital certificate of ownership. Not only will the sale of NFTs be a milestone step in making Rembrandt ownership accessible for all, but owners will also be granted exclusive access to the new, and soon to be open, MetaRembrandt Museum — the only place in the world where all the paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn can be found remastered, digitally restored to their original state, and in high definition. The Night Watch NFT initiative is the result of a collaboration between the Rembrandt Heritage Foundation and blockchain innovators HODL Finance. It was announced on the first anniversary of the death of world-renowned Rembrandt expert, Professor Dr Ernst van de Wetering, who worked tirelessly to preserve Rembrandt's collection and make it accessible for current and future generations. Professor van de Wetering made his life’s work to trace, authenticate and preserve all of Rembrandt’s works. His legacy with The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation was to have Rembrandt’s full art collection digitised and remastered, ensuring it remains immortalised. He even recreated the pieces from The Night Watch that were cut off in 1715 and feared lost forever. Jess Muntenaar, COO at HODL Finance, said: “We are proud that together with The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation, we have digitally reconstructed and captured Rembrandt’s paintings in high definition, and made them accessible to everyone through blockchain ownership. Digitising art is not a replacement for the real thing, but rather a way to preserve art, make it available to everyone, and ensure that Rembrandt will always be there for future generations.” NFTs cannot be copied, replaced or subdivided, ensuring absolute security and authenticity. Every NFT is recorded in a database (a blockchain) and can be stored for as long as the owner wishes, or sold. An owner of one of the 8,000 pieces of the Night Watch automatically becomes a founder of the MetaRembrandt Museum. Founders have lifetime access to the museum, and can also ‘rent out’ their NFT, which not only provides a return on investment, but also gives other art lovers the opportunity to gain access to this highly exclusive digital venue. Pim Slager, co-founder of The Rembrandt Heritage Foundation, says: "The MetaRembrandt Museum is the only place where people can view all the paintings of Rembrandt together and in high definition. I feel honoured that we can now share the life's work of Rembrandt van Rijn with the whole world." For more information and to register to own a piece of The Night Watch, visit www.metarembrandt.com. About HODL Finance The Hodl Finance ecosystem is designed to continue to fuel innovative projects. By providing funding, community and expertise for a wide range of forward-thinking initiatives, Hodl Finance believes that our future should not be determined by Big Tech, but rather by creators and communities. Put the power where it belongs and let the community share in the benefits.

Zesty Paws Files Lawsuit Against Nutramax

Zesty Paws

Zesty Paws LLC, filed a lawsuit on September 16, 2022, before the Florida US District Court with numerous allegations against Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. and Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. (“Nutramax”). The action is for broad-based false and misleading advertising, based on Nutramax’s print and on-line advertising and, of particular concern for pet food consumers, numerous and repeated failures to meet its product labelling claims. According to the lawsuit, an independent accredited laboratory tested several Nutramax products to determine whether the Nutramax products meet their label claims. The testing revealed that 8 Nutramax products contained 28 separate instances in which the active ingredients were below levels stated in the product label. In the majority of cases, the shortfall was significant. The failed Nutramax products included: (1) Imuquin Immune Health Supplement Powder for Cats and Kittens; (2) Imuquin Immune Health Supplement Powder for Dogs and Puppies; (3) Cosequin Senior Joint Health Supplement for Senior Dogs; (4) Solliquin Behavior Supplement for Dogs & Cats; (5) Cosequin Minis Maximum Strength Joint Health Supplement for Small Dogs; (6) Dasuquin Soft Chews for Dogs (Small to Medium Dogs); (7) Dasuquin with MSM Soft Chews for Dogs 150ct soft chews (Large Dogs); and (8) Welactin Omega-3 Fish Oil for Dogs. In addition to the mislabeling, the lawsuit identifies multiple instances of false and misleading advertising, including claims by Nutramax to be the “ industry leader” in the pet supplement industry, despite not being the leader in relevant metrics (revenue or volume). Another example cited was Nutramax’s widely used "#1 Veterinarian Recommended ” advertising claims, which is based on a survey of only a confined demographic of small animal veterinarians, which the lawsuit alleges deceives consumers. Zesty Paws® pet supplements are made with the highest quality ingredients to maximize the wellness of its customers’ pets. Zesty Paws® products are thoroughly tested and have over 275,000 5-star ratings and reviews combined on Amazon, Chewy and Zestypaws.com* and have been regularly recognized as bestsellers on Amazon. *Ratings and reviews based on all Zesty Paws® supplements on Amazon, Chewy and ZestyPaws.com via Power Reviews as of May 31st, 2022 About Zesty Paws® At Zesty Paws®, our passion is simple: to enable and inspire a ZEST FOR LIFE in pets and pet parents.

Halloween Thrills Can Be Good for Your Mental Health & Reduce Stress of Daily Living

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

During a time when many of us are anxious about daily living, the thrill of a Halloween fright might alleviate some stress, according to Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy. D., President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. “There’s a psychological release from knowing that we can overcome our fear and enjoy the feeling of being exposed to crisis or threat in a safe environment,” she said. “This could be exactly the kind of release we need from our daily stresses—even if it’s just for a few moments.” “When you visit a haunted house or watch a horror movie, there’s a rush of adrenaline, endorphins and dopamine,” Dr. Nealon added. “This rush is translated by our brain into feelings of euphoria, satisfaction and empowerment when the fear subsides. We get a sense of relief and well-being.” Thrill seekers who test their own limits can also reinforce bonds with others when this experience is shared, according to Dr. Nealon. But there is a downside to Halloween that Dr. Nealon warns about. “When we mock the disadvantaged, the mentally ill, those with special needs, or anyone with a perceived difference, we contribute to stigma and discrimination which makes it even tougher for people living with adversity. This Halloween, and always, be mindful that there are those around you who are struggling—they need your support, your kindness, and not your taunts.” “Today, we have enough real fear and anxiety in our daily lives. Halloween frights can be an appropriate way to release some of the pent-up tension in our bodies so that we can better tackle the actual challenges we face,” she said. “At the same time, it’s a time to reflect on how we, as a society, need to focus on how to better serve those most in need of our support and kindness, understanding that this is an important step to community wellness for all of us,” Dr. Nealon said.

BOO! Home Repair Doesn't Have to be Scary!

YourUpdateTV

We love Halloween but what can really give a homeowner a fright is when your house starts making creepy sounds or smelling funny. Not everyone is a repair expert, so how do homeowners know when they need to call an expert? Recently, Mark Dawson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Authority Brands’ Trade Brands, conducted a satellite media tour to share tips that can help consumers make sure their house is in tip-top shape and safe for family and friends this spooky season and beyond. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/3DMbh3PDuno Like a regular health check-up, a home maintenance schedule is important for every house's upkeep. Continuing to check on your appliances, heating and cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems will help prevent breakdowns, save money, and keep your home looking its best. It is important to prepare your home for the colder season ahead, to be mindful of those creepy sounds and smells, and to identify and repair any home issues that could cause larger problems for your home and family in the future. No matter what age you are, flickering lights will make you feel uneasy. While most reasons behind flickering lights are nothing to be concerned about, others could mean there’s a bigger issue in the house’s electrical system that could be a safety hazard for you and your family. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, house fires will occur in over 1 million American homes each year, so it’s important to get to the root of the problem sooner rather than later. In fact, one of the main causes of house fires is loose wiring. And loose wiring can present itself as flickering lights. If that’s the case, you’ll need a complete diagnostic to assess the danger and what needs to be addressed. A Mister Sparky electrician will not only try to fix the immediate problem of the flickering light but will inspect the home thoroughly to ensure that there are no loose wires anywhere else in the home. For more info or to request an appointment with your local Mister Sparky visit mistersparky.com. If you hear pipes rattling, thuds when you turn off a faucet, or gurgling sounds in the drain, then your plumbing system might need to be checked. When your plumbing system is working properly, you don't have to think about it. Water comes in, water and waste get removed – that's the end of the story. Unfortunately, things don't always go so smoothly. Sometimes, the plumbing can break down – noisily. When in doubt, call in a qualified plumber to diagnose your noisy pipes and get your plumbing system flowing in peak condition again. Give your local Benjamin Franklin Plumbing a call for any plumbing questions or visit benjaminfranklinplumbing.com for more info. When it comes to your home’s cooling and heating system, the majority of the time you’ll forget it’s there, as new and modern HVAC units are pretty quiet. However, you might come across the occasional clicking or funky smell that might make you think twice about what’s going on with your system. If your air conditioner is making any of these noises - squealing/screeching, rattling, buzzing, clicking, hissing, whistling, humming, cracking, or banging - it is best to consult with a trained, certified HVAC technician to pinpoint the issue and offer you the best advice for fixing the sound.

New Zealand’s International Border Has Reopened: What’s New in New Zealand

YourUpdateTV

No matter the length of the stay, one thing is for certain: visitors to New Zealand will never run out of places to see. Following the country’s reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic, Tourism New Zealand has recently launched a brand-new campaign, “If You Seek,” inviting international visitors to unleash the seeker within. Recently, Sarah Handley, General Manager Americas and Europe at Tourism New Zealand, conducted a satellite media tour to discuss this campaign and share ideas to help curious travelers plan a trip of personal discovery and long-term growth. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ujl2MnugTms “If You Seek,” the country’s first global campaign post-pandemic, is designed to warmly welcome all visitors who are willing to embrace New Zealand’s distinctive values of manaakitanga (a deep expression of hospitality and reciprocal understanding/connection) and kaitiakitanga (guardianship and care for the environment), positioning the destination as a place to nourish and transform. With two main islands, 13 national parks, and dozens of diverse cities, there are plenty of New Zealand attractions and activities to choose from. Explore golden coastlines fringed with native pōhutukawa trees, follow walking trails to waterfalls hidden in beech forests, or cycle through gently rolling vineyards. For those after New Zealand's famous adventure activities and extreme sports, seekers can choose from bungy jumping, jet boating, skydiving, or zip-lining. Or relax and take it easy at beautiful hot pools, cultural attractions, and art galleries. Travelers can book a flight to New Zealand online or via local travel agents to enjoy stunning landscapes and meet friendly locals. From the west coast, it’s easier and quicker to fly to New Zealand than it is to go to some popular destinations in Europe. If visiting from the East Coast, fly through Chicago or New York, as the flight is worth the journey. Tourism New Zealand’s airline partners Air New Zealand, American Airlines, United Airlines, and Hawaiian Airlines offer direct flights to New Zealand from seven U.S. cities - Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, New York, and Honolulu. Most international flights arrive into Auckland Airport, located in the northern part of the North Island. Christchurch, Wellington, Rotorua, Queenstown, and Dunedin airports also receive a small number of international flights. Find out more about New Zealand airports. For help booking New Zealand flights, contact 100% Pure New Zealand Specialists – these are locally-based travel agents around the world who have completed special training with Tourism New Zealand to increase their knowledge of the country.

Thousands of Hosts Across the Country Use Their Income from Airbnb to Fulfill Their Travel Dreams

YourUpdateTV

You don’t have to decide between being a host or a guest, because you can be both at the same time. In the US, nearly one-in-four Airbnb Hosts were also guests on the platform, each Host earning almost $12,000 - between January 1 and June 30, 2022. Recently, Caroline Hutt, host of an eco-cabin in Ontario, Canada, conducted a satellite media tour to talk about this and her experience being an Airbnb Host. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Nd7_bOVyWPo There’s no surprise that the Airbnb Host community is passionate about travel. In fact, more than half of its current Host community began their journey with Airbnb traveling as a guest on the platform. And while they now spend their time dreaming up inspiring listing ideas, seeking out the hidden gems in their neighborhoods or doing the many other things involved to ensure their guests are living like locals – they too, need to scratch the travel itch sometimes. Many hosts are seeing their homes as a way to make extra money while traveling, whether to cover some of their mortgage and bills or even fund a summer holiday abroad. In the US, nearly one-in-four Airbnb Hosts were also guests on the platform, typically earning more than $12,000 between January 1 and June 30, 2022. According to a recent survey, over 60 percent of Hosts who said they list their primary home said one of the occasions in which they rented to guests was while traveling on vacation. That typical income means that Hosts can travel to destinations like Buenos Aires, Istanbul or Milan and still have earnings left to cover living expenses or save for next year’s trip. Take it from eco-cabin Superhost Caroline. Caroline and her husband are avid travelers, and they started their journey on Airbnb by renovating and listing a campervan on their property – before branching out and building The Eco-Cabin Muskoka in Bracebridge, Ontario, Canada. The income from Hosting has funded their trips to Iceland, Bali, Lombok, Morocco, and a lot of US road trips. Since Caroline began Hosting her cabin in 2019, she has earned $39,593 which has allowed her to fuel her passion for travel while providing guests with a tranquil getaway in her off-grid cabin. For anyone interested in hosting to supplement to fund their next trip away, prospective Hosts in the US can learn more about how much they could earn on Airbnb through the What’s My Place Worth tool. The interactive tool computes the estimated income based on geography, type of listing, and also uses prior Airbnb booking data in the area. For more information, visit Airbnb.com/host.
